Here I sit at my computer and I realize that I may not be able to write anything serious today (I will wait for the applause).
Jesse and I are both still snotty. I think mine is more allergies, but hers is the "crud" in her chest causing her to cough. She can barely talk without coughing. Laughing is out of the question – she just cannot get enough air. Yes, she has been to a doctor. No, it is nothing serious. Mornings are the worst with both of us blowing our noses and coughing. This morning I woke up with a sinus headache which makes me not want to do much other than crawl back into bed. A good shower and some drugs worked wonders.
The reason I put "crud" in quotes is because Jesse used the term on her blog, but she had a typo and actually put "crude." I try not to correct her for such minor things, but I did point out that she might want to change the spelling. She did, but Toby and I still gave her a hard time about it. You can’t do anything around here that someone does not poke fun at you. We live to tease.
I have been working on a watercolor portrait of GBN1. I did this painting yesterday, but I want to re-do it today and correct my mistakes. Sometimes the first try at a painting is not what you had in mind. This painting has some things that I like, but lots that I do not. First of all, it does not look right. Second, I usually blow the whole painting when I try to do some "loose" background. The hair and face color is wrong. I seem to be having a difficult time with skin tone. I do like the red shirt and black cat, although they are a bit "tight" rather than having the loose quality I long for. If the second attempt at this portrait works out, I will show you later. If it does not work out, I will still probably show you. Stay tuned.
